Published on Mar 17, 2019: Awesome video of smallmouth bass exploding on top water Salmo Poppers. Cool slow motion footage of epic strikes. Jason Mitchell joins guide Tim Snyder on Kabetogama Lake in northern Minnesota for a fun, shallow, pre-spawn pattern that happens each spring.
Find smallmouth bass in shallow bays and protected shorelines in a few feet of water where there is sand, rock and rubble. Topwater lures are an entertaining way to target these fish. Beautiful lake located in Voyageurs National Forest, most of the lake is undeveloped and there is endless structure with hundreds of islands. This north woods lake is loaded with great smallmouth bass that seldom get fished. Most people that travel to Kabetogama target the great walleye fishing but the smallmouth bass are the lake’s best secret.
